It’s Halloween time! So we’re celebrating by checking out some of the favorite creature types of the horror genre for the rest of the month. We’ve already covered the two most obvious types, Zombies and Vampires. Because the other horror creature types in Magic are either boring or extremely limited, we decided to lump all the rest together in one episode, and it’s awesome!
I do have to apologize for the quality of my audio. The other dorks sound amazing because we started using Discord for the call. Windows decided that my headset should be my default microphone without sharing that bit of information with me, so the recording software recorded it instead of my actual mic. I really hope it doesn’t keep you from listening, because I was REALLY proud of this one before I found out what happened. I just can’t win.
It’s Halloween time! So we’re celebrating by checking out some of the favorite creature types of the horror genre for the rest of the month. We’re following up last week’s undead extravaganza with a more different undead extravaganza – Vampires! Because there were so few vampires in Magic’s early days, we’ll be focusing a little more on the individual cards. At least until Vampires underwent a massive change from “big bad iconic creatures” to “standard everyday race” in relatively recent years.
Wow, 7 years counts as “relatively recent”. Man we’re old.
Next week: The rest of the spooky subtypes!
